Oldyeller's latest Manna Menu may be just what you want for your new OS. It shows all of your resources in one convenient menu and even has the capability of installing Wine along with the two best free Windows Bible programs, theWord and Bible Analyzer.

Barry's latest Precise is my preferred OS to use with the Manna Menu since it can install Xiphos. Xiphos does have some additional extras such as maps and different commentaries available. These can be installed easily with Bibletime's Bookshelf Manager. Of course when Xiphos is used Bibletime should also be installed since it's Bookshelf Manager is much better than Xiphos's Module Manager.

Give it a try. Also, oldyeller would like to have your comments posted on the Manna Menu thread. Thank you oldyeller.

Hi Jim,

first off is THANK YOU for starting this thread on

"HOWTO set up your own custom Bible study operating system"

About e-sword; I have notice on racy 5.5 it wants to close when using kjv+ trying to use strongs viewing. If this makes since. Also I have notice that on slacko 5.5 non-pae wine does not work so well, at least with the bibleprograms.


precise by Barryk and pemasu it works just fine. Will be doing a major upgrade around the end of April on manna.pet and the 2 Manna OS.

Again thanks Jim for putting all of this information up here so we all can enjoy the Word of God to the fullest


Cheers

TaZoC has done it again. His latest distribution really excels and works great as a base for your Bible study.

You need to download the Bibletime sfs from his website, however, he has included an installer for theWord. The windows programs Bible Analyzer and eSword also work fine, however you must first either start Wine or install theWord which will also start Wine. Also install the Bible Analyzer pet and eSword pet so that they appear properly in the menu.

Those with 64bit hardware will really enjoy this distribution. I prefer his Mariner distribution with the KDE desktop.

Mick has released the new Slacko-5.6. It continues to be an outstanding distribution to use as a base for your own Bible Study OS. Very Happy Mick has also updated Bibletime to the latest version 2.9.2 which corrects a number of bugs. Thank you Mick for your continued support.

Give it a try.

Kirk and Jamesbond have released their new Fatdog64 700 alpha 1 that should make a great base system for your Bible Study for those that have 64bit hardware.

So far i've used a few sfs from 600 that are working super. Libreoffice-4.3.0_64_en-US_xz.sfs (prepared with get libreoffice) and Wine-1.5.4-i486.sfs with 32bit-slacko-1.sfs which works well with some 32bit applications such as e-Sword, TheWord, and BibleAnalyzer. Hopefully we will soon have an sfs that works with the latest Bibletime.

Give it a try.

PostPosted: Mon 11 Aug 2014, 21:34    Post subject: Running Windows 32bit Software using Wine in Fatdog64 700  

For those who are interested in running the 32bit Windows Bible software discussed above. I used version2013's latest wine-1.7.23-i486_v1.1.pet which works well with Fatdog64 700 after conversion to an sfs. Also required is the Fatdog64 600 32bit-slacko-3.sfs. I also converted version2013's wine_extras-v2.pet to an sfs which is also useful in the Wine setup.

Subject description: Bibletime 2.10.1
 

James has also updated to the latest Bibletime 2.10.1 for their newest OS. It's working great!Very Happy

Bibletime is installed using gslapt. In gslapt, click "update" first so that it updates the index. Then search for Bibletime and select it. Gslapt also installs libsword and other dependencies except for qt4.

To complete the installation, get the qt4-4.8.5.sfs here and load the sfs using the System SFS Loader under System in the Fatdog Control Panel.

I've found the new Fatdog64 700 a1 to be extremely fast and stable. Give it a try on your 64bit system.

Thanks again to the Fatdog team for continuing to support Bibletime. Very Happy

NOTE: There is a small problem with this latest version in that verse numbers are not showing up in the text. This problem is also in the latest Windows version and was injected by the latest Bibletime update. It has nothing to do with the Fatdog update.

Regards,
Jim
